He seems to be everywhere; on television, in book stores and most recently, elbowed his way into the current political morass. But whether he’s “firing” reality contestants, running a billion dollar corporation, picking fights with celebrities or toying with the idea of a presidential bid, Donald Trump’s larger than life persona has been captured for an upcoming Bluewater Productions biography comic.

“Political Power: Donald Trump,” scheduled for an October 2011 release, follows the polarizing life and career of the high-profile tycoon, presidential aspirant and media bon vivant.

“We’re trying to portray him less as a caricature and more as potential leader of the free world,” said Bluewater president Darren Davis on why Trump’s biography was being published via the “Political Power” brand. “Whether you agree with his political posturing or find him completely self-interested and insincere, he’s pulling up a chair at 2012 Republican presidential nomination table.”

Written by freelance journalist Jerome Maida, the 32-page Trump comic biography covers his transition from real-estate magnate who took over his successful father’s company to “The Donald,” the eponymous moniker that fuels tabloids, drives television ratings and relishes the spotlight.

“Trump may be egocentric, he may be a grandstander and a loudmouth, but there’s no denying he has the attention of America,” said Maida.

The issue, which will sport a cover from noted artist Joe Phillips, will retail for $3.99.  It will be available through comic book shops and several online venues such as and the Barnes and Noble and Borders.

The “Political Power” series was launched earlier in 2009 as a companion piece to the successful “Female Force” biography title. The comic allowed Bluewater to delve into the lives and power and legacy of some of the most important and powerful political personalities of the past generation regardless of gender.

    No interest in this book or any of these bios but the art looks awful. It looks like he’s got a load in his pants and he’s thoroughly enjoying it.

    Is “we will publish badly made comics about celebrities you’re sick of hearing about in the news” part of Bluewater’s mission statement as a company? I think it is, right after the part about forgetting to pay your artists.

    The Donald wishes that his hair looked that good. At the Press Corps dinner where President Obama got him good with the “whatever happened to Biggie and Tupac” rib he looked like he was in bad need of a pony-tail holder.

    Huh… Taking an oath in front of the White House? Who paid for this obvious piece of BS propoganda?

    If you told the story of Trumps life, his failed marriages, failed businesses, fights with Rosie O’Donnell and general blow hard nature you wouldn’t believe this man was real and most likely think it was some soup opera character.

    All that said this is about 2 weeks late.
